? >> here's the real problem with this. back in the '90s when the clinton administration had a so-called assault weapons ban, that also included a ban on high-capacity magazines and none of it did any good, had any impact. there are a couple of reasons for that. in terms of the magazines, these things, millions of them out there, they are very inexpensive and you get in this sort of bidding match. they say, well we shouldn't have a 30-round magazine or a 20-round, the president says let's have a ten. the governor of new york says, well, i can top that, we will have a 7-round magazine this is -- all sort of makes you feel good but, in fact, it doesn't do much. now, if you are out there and if you're crazy and if you've got a gun like this and if you're gonna shoot people with it, it takes a second or so to change the magazines. >> before i let you go, i have to ask you about an ad the nra put on a website yesterday. it mentions the president's daughters. it calls the president an elitist hypocrite because he is skeptical about posting armed guards in schools, yet his own girls do h

discussion and greater or concentration. of when i was the point person for president clinton in passing the brady bill which was in the late part of november of '93 and then the assault weapon ban in the house in the spring of '94, it was those two bills that were very focused on criminal access. president clinton's gun legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on quote-unquote the energy and force of newtown i would caution not to do that. it's clearly galvanized the country to have an honest conversation and look internally and have a serious conversation, but brady bill and the assault weapon ban were done without, quote-unquote, a columbine or what happened in virginia, any of those incidents. i do believe just in the last four years or i would say the last eight years of politics this, what happened there has made all of us have a discussion that has been sitting on the sidelines or the periphery of politics to be focused and this, obviously, tomorrow morning the president's going to introduce his legislation or his package and decide what le
situation on the ground. >> brown: even this afternoon, as secretary of state hillary clinton suggested, the situation in algeria remained confused. the focus was this natural gas compound in the sahara desert seen here in footage from last month. the vast, natural gas facility at in amenas is owned in part by b.p. and located just 60 miles from algeria's border with libya. islamists apparently led by this man-- mokhtar belmoktar-- attacked the plant yesterday, claiming they took 41 foreign hostages, including seven americans. early today, the algerian military stormed the sprawling site, as the militants were attempting to leave with the hostages. hours later, the country's communications minister told algerian radio, "an important number of hostages were freed and an important number of terrorists were neutralized and we regret the few dead and wounded, but we don't have numbers." u.s. officials said an american drone watched the operation from overhead, but the algerians refused u.s. military assistance. confusion reigned, the militants claimed 35 hostages died, while algerian state
that this afternoon, before this news broke, secretary of state hillary clinton did express condolences to the families of those people, people from several countries, who died in this terrorist act. and yet at this point we don't know many details at all of how many died, how many survived. it's simply not known. >> jill dougherty, thank you very much. of course,do know there are some americans still unaccounted for tonight. we are also hearing the first words though from another american hostage who is safe and we want to get straight to david mattingly in needer land, texas, who has been following the other american hostages. david, what can you tell us about the american you've spoken to who is alive? >> reporter: erin, first of all, we can tell you his name. that's significant because it's the first tame that we've been able to confirm a name of one of the americans who were at the plant at the time, mark cobb. he's reportedly from texas. we weren't able to confirm that directly with him because we had a very brief exchange with him. cnn contacting him via text and he sent two text
the carter and clinton administrations i was deeply involved in policies between the u.s. and israel, but i also write from the perspective of someone who has relatives in israel, who has spent many, many years in times and israel. so it's a unique perspective, looking from the outside in and from the inside out. >> ambassador eizenstat, israel was one of a few foreign policy issues in the 2012 campaign. mitt romney saying he won't see any sunlight between the u.s. and israel. is the u.s. relationship, and vice versa, a healthy relationship? >> it's a remarkable relationship between one of the nation's that have the smallest majority in israel, and our great country. and it's almost a mystical relationship when you think of how much support we have showered on israel, and how much support we get back. it's due to the fact that this is not just jewish support. we are only 2% of the population in the united states. it's because we have shared values, shared enemies, and islamic terrorism, that many people in the united states view israel as the holy land. not just jews, but not just as well.
. >>> secretary of state, hillary clinton is set to testify before a senate panel next wednesday. we had already heard she will testify before the foreign affairs committee that same day. secretary clinton will be asked about the deadly september attack on the us consulate in benghazi. the head of the fbi is in tripoli, libya this morning. director robert mueller is getting an update into the investigation of last year's killing of chris stevens from the bay area and three other americans in the city of benghazi. there's been little news of progress in that investigation so far. >>> berkeley police searching for a bank robber. he robbed mechanic's bank on solano avenue shortly after it opened for business. police say he got away with an undisclosed amount of cash. no within was hurt. >>> now we know more about the domestic violence incident that police say led to a fremont man killing his own father. the deadly confrontation happened last week on pardy court. they say the man attacked two of his sons with a bat. one of the sons then shot him. the son surrendered. he said he acted in self- defens

once -- the court struck down clinton for trying this, and i'm afraid president obama may have this king complex. >> what do you make of what he's saying? 23 executive actions, some you think would be targets for being struck down by a court? >>> there's the completely anti government wing that will make that argument. i guess they made it against president bush 41 when he banned the importation of certain kind of assault weapons and made it against executive order signed by president clinton. presidents have the power to do executive orders. that's a power deferred to the president by congress and the constitution. there are those -- as rand paul says, he wants to nullify. that's code word. >> for what? >> nullification, look when it's been used. it's kind of a state's rights argument that gets used in times of great controversy. but the president is acting by executive power, legally conf conferred on him these executive orders are basically common-sense things, basically geared around sharing information, sharing information to reduce gun violence. >> null if i is a code wor

to eradicate coca back in the amazon. and so the last i heard to my think it was president clinton who said -- the da was asking to released this fungus into the rain forest. president clinton said no. the last heard in 2007 was that they're looking into ways of using this fungus as an eradication methods. sounds kind of fd to me, releasing a fungus into a rain forest. but, yes. i think that is an interesting way of seeing how these privileges are afforded to some powerful factors and not to others. >> i would just that quickly, first on the fungus think, one of the great experts in this town was sitting in the audience and is done a lot of research on this issue. perhaps we can talk later. on the question of the u.s. embassy, the u.s. embassy's own website used to recommend to travelers landing in la paz to have copay tea. it is and no-printer. how many people have been? its about 13,000 feet high. the airport which is a plateau above the city is even higher. so your oxygen content at that altitude is 40 percent of what you would have the sea level. he suffered terrible outages sickness. h
to eradicate coca back in the amazon. the last i heard i think it was president clinton who said that dea was asking to release this fungus into the rainforest president clinton said know what time the last i heard in 2007 as that they are still looking into ways of abusing this on this as an eradication method and it sounds a fee to me releasing the funds into the rain forest to see they are some powerful factors and not to others i want to throw them to an estimate on the u.s. embassy their own website use to recommended the travelers landing. in the airport at the plateau of the city is even higher so the lt is about 40% of what you would have at sea level so you suffer terrible sickness and extreme fatigue. you don't want to do anything the first two days unless you can zoom coca product is whether it is chewing coca or having a the candy that is at the airport and that will allow you to acclimate to that altitude and so it is and what you feel when you to the coca. it's what you don't feel. you don't feel ha but you don't feel the altitude and get those headaches and it's a very beni
secretary. secretary of state hillary clinton. and the defense secretary. so ken salazar will resign and president obama will have to fill that post. back to whether or not you support executive action on gun- control measures. senator rand paul talked about this recently. he said that president obama is acting like a king. [video clip] >> i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican presidents, but one that wants to infringe on the second amendment, we will fight tooth and nail. i promise you there will be no rock left unturned as far as trying to stop them from usurping the constitution, running roughshod over congress. you will see one heck of a debate if he decides to try to do this. host: that was banned all. jerry and san pedro, california. caller: how are you? i am not in favor of's president executive action against gun ownership. -- i'm not in favor of president obama's action against gun ownership. i support what rand paul said. people should be able to defend ourselves and defend our country against tyranny. i believe the founding fathers made that a key them
phase of the so-called big deal on the budget. we're of the view that just as it took during the clinton administration, it didn't happen in one fell swoop to get our economy in great shape and move toward a balanced bump started off with three phases. started with president bush's actions, the first president bush, in terms of taxation, before president clinton took office. then the actions the president took in '94 and then in '97. well, we think there's a third phase here that can set our country on a path that will allow us to get our debt, the gdp, our deficit to gdp, down around 3%, which is the basis of which all economists left, right, center, agree, are the areas which we really can begin to grow as a country. and also my grandfather used to say, with the grace of god and good will of the neighbors, cooler heads will prevail between now and the time we deal with the debt ceiling, that we may very well be able to meet the goal which we set out to do, which is to have roughly a $4 trillion cut over ten years, and in the long-term deficit and put us on that path. but i didn't come
concentration. when i was a point person for president clinton and passing the brady bill and the late part of november 93 and the assault weapons ban in the house in the spring of 94, it was those to those very focused on criminal acts nice. president clinton's legislation post-columbine did not pass. so the notion that everybody should rely on the energy and force of newton, i would caution not to do that. it's galvanized to have a conversation internally and have a serious conversation, but for the assault weapons ban, were done with columbine would have been in virginia. i do believe in the last four years, the last eight years of politics, what happened there has made all of us have a discussion and appropriate politics to be focused for the president to introduce this legislation or package undecided what is going to do by executive order. but we are at a tipping point is postponed, delayed or for whatever reason hasn't happened. my small plaintiff caution anything but the last time i had success, goes back in 93 and 94. those were pretty columbine. his entire package fell flat. >> co
publications prepared the two authors were originally hired under the clinton administration to evaluate the study. they did not find any benefit there either. yet the band is still touted as a way to reduce gun violence. guest: when it was going to sunset in 2004, people were predicting double-digit increases in murder and robbery rates if it was allowed to sunset. those crime rates never went up after the ban. they have been going down consistently. murder rates are 20% lower than immediately before the ban sunset. even more sophisticated studies do not find benefits. host: our guest is with us until 9:15. michael from alabama, you are on with john lott. caller: this is my first time to ask this question of c-span. i especially want to ask him if he is a conservative. i wish i had been able to ask a question of that wonderful sociologists about -- host: our guest is here now. what do you want to ask? caller: i have obsessive- compulsive disorder. i used to have severe depression. i was born with asperger's syndrome. that is why i talk a little funny. why has nobody and the nra, i can u
clinton did so effectively at the convention. i also think that politically, you know, the president doesn't quite like to mix it up in these deals the way, say, his vice president i think very effectively does and i think that that's something that would be good to work on in the second term. >> it's great analysis. russ, what about investors at this point? what should we be doing with our money at this point? smaller countries, why is that and how do you get a piece of that growth? >> i think the outlet for the u.s., i think we're going to have a decent year. it may not be great because of the fiscal drag. but i'm confident that the u.s. economy will expand. the question is just what do you pay for that? and as you know, we've been advocating more of a position internationally and the argument there is not that there aren't problems in emerging markets or europe but that their problems are better reflected in the price. the s&p 500 trades at a price to book about 2.2. it's roughly half that level in europe. >> gentlemen, thank you. >> thank you. >> see you soon. appreciate your time toni
all the time. remember the famous picture of chelsea clinton after the monica lewinsky affair walking between her parents to the helicopter? or hold on, let me just finish. and this time before the dnc when the white house released a picture of the president with his two daughters snuggling on the couch, there it, watching michelle obama. look, they use their children for political purposes hen they want. to. >> first of all, walking with chelsea to the helicopter, they were going on vacation. so what are they supposed to do, take her to another helicopter or through the back door somewhere? >> it was the hand-holding and connecting them, rollland. >> okay, so what? if there was a photo and there were no hand-holding then, it's okay? seriously. that is not the same as putting an ad out where you are mentioning the president's daughters. it makes no sense. and again, if you're the nra, you don't have to actually do that. you don't have to go that far. if you want to do that, why don't you say okay, why don't you go to chicago and say how many armed guards are there in chicago's schools
. here is secretary of state hillary clinton. >> because of the fluidity and the fact that there is a lot of planning going on, i can not give you any further details at this time about the current situation on the ground but i can say that more broadly, what we are seeing in mali, in algeria, reflects the broader strategic challenge, first and foremost, for the countries in north after from and for the united states and the broader international community. bill: watch this story too. the hostage matter being described as fluid and dangerous and our chief washington correspondent james rosen leads our coverage this morning. what is the latest now, james? >> reporter: bill and martha, good morning a lot breaking on this story. just in the past few minutes the algerian terrorists behind this plot are reportedly demanding according to a maur taken yaw news report. a looking to trade americans for two figures behind bars. not clear where they are behind bars. algerian news agency says 650 hostages have been freed including 573 algerians. unclear too how these terrorists would have goten ahold
to other nations, look in that liberal democrats such as hillary clinton in kosovo, serbia and also neocons in the invasion on iraq and most recently the globalized, obama and the invasion of libya. so what my question is, here we have the united states denying the sovereignty of other nations and that i think is a problem of the two parties, both which are socially were parties. >> okay, in my book i distinguish between sovereignty in general, which is westphalian sovereignty, which would be the sovereignty of the burmese junta are any autocratic state and democratic sovereignty, which i call american, but there are other democratic sovereignty states. i make that distinction in the democratic sovereignty is more greater moral authority and sovereignty in general. so the cases you're referring to are in most cases overthrowing autocratic sovereignty. this is also a policy question. at that concerns me with the regime questions of a political science professor, liberal democracy and clinical science are two types. one is regime to close the type of government you have in the form goes to yo

with bill clinton and the republican congress, look at 2011. i think in the end they will decide they cannot use this measure and they seem to be heading that way this week in their house republican retreat. >> ian bremer is with us. he's the president of your asia group. business leaders around the world pay attention to you. i was intrigued to see you wrote the continuing role of u.s. stability tops your list of upside in your global economic outlook. u.s. stability you said, not instability. thought it was a typo. you've been lying under a rock for the last several weeks or i'd like to try a dose of whatever medication you're on. >> not as if i think washington is working well. the washington dysfunction was number four of the top risk we put out in 2013. the question is what's the impact on the united states as opposed to a china, russia, brazil. the u.s. is the world's largest economy, the u.s. dollar is a global reserve currency. housing continues to pick up, unemployment is going down, american corporations are the world's largest and they're sitting on lots of cash, which, you know,
: at least in the short-term. but in the long-term, a man who worked with the clinton administration and also worked with the lbj, today is the anniversary of martin luther king, he said that could not have been done without tremendous effort to reaching out to the other side. here's what he said: >> i think that reflects reality here is which things cannot get done without some republican votes. it is a matter of math; right? you have to have some republican votes. i think the concern with some democrats is that the rhetorical push right now from the white house isn't making that easier. you know -- david: by the way, we're looking at live pictures of the president. i believe he's on pennsylvania avenue; is that right? you would know that. it's the pennsylvania walk after the luncheon; right? >> right, getting close to the white house where the parade stand is. you know -- david: keep those pictures up if you can while gerry is talking. >> they got a fiscal cliff deal done at the end of the year by getting some democrats and republicans in the house voting together. that's going to have to b
